We picked blackberries on our way to the beach. There was a really nice church and cottages on the way. The weather was lovely and sunny. Lovely views from the beach, a great relaxing afternoon. Fab.

A lovely stretch of beach, with only a handful of people on it on a lovely afternoon in August. It's not sand, though: it's small pebbles. And it drops away quite quickly as you get into the waves. But gorgeous views and clearly not too...More

Doesn't get much better than this, one of those beaches that enables you to sit and relax for hours on end, without any form of disturbance. Parking is easy and the roads accessing the beach aren't of any concern. Would highly recommend.

Two beaches - we visited the dog friendly beach. Very rocky but a great beach and less busy than the other one.

Love coming here. Easily accessible. Easy to park. Lifeguards present. It is nearly always windy here. Family friendly. Bit gravelly though if you prefer soft sand. Charming little church.

We found this wonderful little beach off the beaten track. Fantastic spot for sun bathing and swimming, adequate parking but get there early and there are toilets and a lovely café for food.

Old church is lovely in a very curious location. Have been here before but now you can no longer see the church properly from the beach which is a shame. The church is now practically hidden because of high hedge screening it. No longer able...More

The beach is secluded and in a beautiful location, just between two hills which you can walk up and look at the stunning views of the sea. When at low tide there is plenty of space to play around on, and is not tightly packed...More

Lovely little beach mainly pebble/stones but does have a fair bit of sand, particularly at low tide, plenty of rocks to climb and rock pools to explore, very close to National Trust car park and refreshment kiosk, well worth a visit.

I can't remember such a gravestone. I've done a quick bit of research and if you go to Cornwall Online Parish Clerks and find the parish of Gunwalloe there is an e-mail link to the local Clerk (Geneology) who can probably... More
